Whoo has School?

Hello My Friends and Welcome Visitors,

Here is a first day of school card I made for a little friend.

This was very fun to make.  The owl svg file actually came with eyes, but I drew them on with copic markers because all owls look woogy eyed to me and my little gal pal giggles when I draw them that way.

I am entering this card into the following challenges

A Surprise for Me; A Prize for You!

Good Morning my Friends & Welcome Visitors!

One of my best blogging friends is Shirl from Creations By Shirl.  We became friends years ago and we have always kept in touch with each other.  I just love her work.  When she saw that I was decorating my office in owls; she sent me this adorable owl calendar.  I knew that she was looking for a Hello Kitty Cricut Cartridge, so I sent her one.  I came home from getting a Cortisone Injection in my neck on Friday to this wonderful surprise gift box from Shirl!

It is a melange of candies, syrups & nuts that you can only find in Hawaii, and some fun scrapbooking items, plus a handmade tissue holder.  Thank you so much Shirl, I love it!  I can't wait to serve exotic food at my next party!  My husband is having a fit over the mustard (he collects mustards...sigh).

So my husband had this brilliant idea; he thinks it would be so fun for me to trade my Cricut Cartridges for fun gift packages.  I have all of my "carts" loaded on to my Gypsy.  I collect, owls, Hello Kitty, beach and of course anything scrapbook that is new and fun!  I also love food that can be served at parties from different areas of the world.  What do you think?  If you have been looking for a Cricut Cart and would like to trade, let me know!

Okay, it is now time to pick a winner of the button maker!  Who will Mr. Random.org pick?  The winner is......Diana Larson!  Wooo Hooo....congrats my friend.  Please hit the contact me button at the top of my blog and send me your address!

My friend Shirl just sent me a message and asked me to list my Cricut Cartridges, okay here we go, are you ready?  They are in no particular order -

Hello My Friends & Welcome Visitors!

Today is one of my favorite days of the week!  It is Decorate to Celebrate day!  The challenge this time is Grandparents Day (or a birthday party just make sure it is a decoration).  As most of you know; I was recently at a CK Scrapbook Convention and I picked up this cute canvas wall hanging kit from Quick Quotes.  I thought it would be perfect for grandparents day.

 The middle canvas has a place for a picture of the grandparents & grandchildren and then a smaller "charm" picture.  So cute!

I am entering this Canvas Wall Art into the following challenges:

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope you will go to Decorate to Celebrate to see what the rest of the design team has created and then play along with us!  The prize is great and we always have so much fun!
